There are many cases of hair loss, but one of the common and the most stressful one is premature balding, when youngsters start losing their hair. There are many causes of this condition, 4 of the most likely ones to happen are mentioned below.


One of the biggest reasons of balding is because of the genes. There are a lot of cases when people start losing their hair at a younger age just because of their genes. If your grandparents had gone baldin a young age, and people in your family have thin hair, it is very likely that you will suffer the same consequences. This is known as Androgenic alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia is the cause of premature baldness in both males and females. It is a genetic sensitivity to DHT that is a testosterone derivative. It acts on the hair follicles and kills them.


If you are observing patches of hair that are missing from your scalp, you should wait for at least 6 months to see if they grow back. If they don’t consult a doctor and prepare for a treatment.

Traction alopecia

When a strand of hair is pulled out, the newer strand is going to be thinner and weaker than the one that was there before. But when this keeps happening again and again, the hair is susceptible to breakage and the follicles may die permanently.

When a condition like this is examined, it is noted that the hair is damaged from the shaft and are completely broken in the roots. The damage is very similar to the one that is caused by traction alopecia. But in that case, the hair fall is very symmetrical, Trichillomania has hair that are broken or damaged in a specific part of the scalp. It can be identified by what hand the person uses, for e.g. right-handed people usually pull hair from the right side.
